The Rocket Man's expedition on the U.K. charts is even more historic after he became the first artist in history to score a U.K. top 10 single in six different decades, thanks to "Cold Heart" with Dua Lipa and remixed by Pnau. "Cold Heart," which is currently seated at No. 2 on the Official U.K. Singles Chart, is his 33rd top 10 on the tally, and it's inching closer to sitting on the throne. Now, Sheeran is pushing his own fanbase to help John secure the spot, despite it being currently occupied by his own single "Shivers."
"@eltonjohn is so close to knocking me off the #1 spot in the U.K. It will be his first number one in almost twenty years and I really want it to happen," Sheeran wrote Thursday (Oct. 14) on Instagram next to a sweet black-and-white photo of him lovingly looking down at the seated legend. "Please go buy/stream/download Cold Heart with @dualipa now, 15 weeks at #1 was more than I ever expected anyway, love you all. Who doesn’t wanna be knocked off by Elton anyway."
